Yummy!

Good food and good service. With so many cocktail choices I didn't know what to do. I'll definitely return and attempt to try them all.

We had recently read a newspaper article about this place, and stopped for a late lunch and dessert. We were seated in the main room and found it very noisy (music plus large group near us) and asked to be reseated. The staff was very accommodating. The sandwich, salad and soup selection was more sophisticated than we expected, and everything... More

Love the atmosphere, inside decor. Fantastic food, wait staff needs to be friendlier. We sat there for at least 15 minutes before our waitress came over and in the meantime several servers walked by, looked at us and didn't acknowledge us or even smile. We had our menus but didn't know what the soup of the day was and had... More

We stopped in for dessert because of the great reviews, and it was a pretty good experience. The service was fast, and the ice cream was good (but not the best I've had). I think it is a little over priced for the quality. The atmosphere is charming.

Last place we ate at while vacationing in St Louis. Our server was friendly and fast, took care of our large party very well. The food was absolutely fantastic and the raspberry lemon drop was delicious. We definitely saved the best for last!

My family and I went here for lunch. The place has meter only parking outside. The inside is neat with a whimsical them. It is kind of hard to talk to each other as it is very loud inside. My husband, who is a meat and potatoes kind of guy, was not happy with the food selection but settled on... More

I'm so glad I ran across this place while staying in St. Louis. It's in the area around St. Louis University. I had the Royal Grille sandwich with turkey, which was described as a grilled cheese for adults. The sandwich and side I got along with it (Stutz salad) were terrific! For dessert, I had the seasonal special of key... More

The food is great, especially the deserts. The food is reasonably priced. I love the look of the place too. It's not far from Grand Center, so it a good spot to eat before a show.
